Swatch: Essie Off The Shoulder

I haven't owned many Essie polishes in the past (read: 1, Penny Lane) so when Wowcher came up with a deal for 5 for £15 recently I couldn't resist getting them, particularly as one of them was Bikini So Teeny which has been on my wishlist for a while.  If you follow me on Twitter (@fundaflawless) or Instagram (@fundaflawless) (if you don't, come join me!), you'll know that they arrived yesterday and I had a choice on my hands as to which to don first!  As you can see from their springtime glory below, it was quite a tough choice...

From top to bottom: Cascade Cool, Mojito Madness, Fear and Desire, Bikini So Teeny, Off The Shoulder (apologies for the slightly dubious lighting)

So I went for Off The Shoulder, which is a pretty hot pink (Cascade Cool is more of a dusky pink).  The application is great - a good thick brush which gives full coverage of the nail and the polish dries quickly too, which is always a bonus.  The photos below show three coats of the polish (I could have got away with two, but I just can't stop painting...!)  This is likely to become one of my summertime go-to polishes as it's just so candy-like and pretty and gives a nice pop to any outfit.
